Hey guys. Just finished modding my icade! (Wife bought the bits for my Crimbo present so it's going away now it's tested ) :0\ anyway I put in 8 Sanwa 30mm OBSF's & a Sanwa JLF and its sooo much better than the standard setup. Just to let you know I put a second spring in to stiffen things up and instead of the black insulation tape ultimate mod I used a thin pen top. I put a tiny shampher on the actuator , put the pen top in boiling water to soften the plastic then pushed over the actuator, then trimmed with a Stanley blade to the same length as the actuator. End results are great. Less travel on the stick. Mame plays fab. Lets see if I can get my lad buy me a true 8 way gate for Xmas too!
